From the Oil Painting course at ActonArt: some non-traditional figure paintings!
For these pieces, reference photos were torn up and re-arranged on the table, then used for reference for the final image. This helps take some of the fear and hesitation out of drawing and painting the figure since the artist no longer has to worry so much about proportional accuracy!
An awesome selection of work from ActonArt’s Comic Workshop!
Comics will be offered as a 12-week course in the winter trimester, where students will learn how to structure panels, make characters and actually walk away with some comics!
From the Color Pencil Workshop at ActonArt.
Color pencils are a popular medium, but often not used to their best! By learning basic techniques in application and markmaking, these pencils can really perform.
Some scratchboard tigers from the Art School Workshop at ActonArt!
Some process and finished shots of these cool “stained paper” turtles from the Art School Workshops at ActonArt!

ActonArt will now be on vacation for the remainder of the summer! We’ll see you back in the studio on Wednesday, September 5th! Until then:
The Foundation classes at ActonArt focus on drawing skill, observation and technical use of materials.
Our Foundation Drawing levels are broken down by age range, so we can fine-tune specific learning objective to each group. Beginners classes are for students 5-6.5 years, Basic A for 6.5-7.5 years, Basic B 7.5-9 years, Intermediate A1 for 9-11 years, and Intermediate A2 for ages 12+. We also offer a Drawing for Teens course for first-time teenage students so they can learn with their peers!
From the Creative Drawing classes at ActonArt: Multi-Pen Drawing!
The Creative Drawing class is unlike the other classes offered at ActonArt; while most focus on technical skills and observation, Creative Drawing helps develop ideas and come up with interesting pieces of art that use those technical skills!
From the Foundation classes at ActonArt: the Griffin project!
In Foundation Classes, students learn a wide variety of drawing techniques with different types of media. We focus on a well rounded program that is offered at levels for students 5+. You can check out these classes and more at our website, where the Fall Trimester schedule is now live for registration.
